On Hold

It’s easy to put your life on hold when you’re looking forward to or nervous about something.

‘Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future’

-Seneca

We’ve had these issues for a few thousand years by the looks of it.

But all those things that we could have done, whilst waiting for an uncertain future is such a waste…

I know because I am the king of it…

2020 was no doubt a lonely year especially for me (You can read about it in my posts about Rome)

So when get speaking to someone and the conversation goes well, All I want to do is talk to them, Kinda understandable but I miss out on, Reading, Studying, Writing, Not focusing 100% on my workouts…

And the majority of the time they amount to nothing…

So not only have I wasted time but got nothing out of it either…

We all do it,

like when you’re waiting to hear back from a job, you don’t apply for others, you just keep refreshing your emails hoping for that one that says congratulations…

I’m sure there are many other examples too…

But the moral is, The present is all we have, don’t but your life on hold for something not guaranteed.
